HP Laptop Power Up Problem

by beerborne / January 16, 2012 9:42 PM PST

I have an HP dv6700 laptop with Windows Vista (64 bit). A couple months ago I completely restored the computer to give it to my sister to use. After re-installing windows I was about to install some programs and the computer went blank and would not power on. I gave up and put it on the shelf. Recently I decided to try again and found a tip to unplug everything, pull out the battery and hold down the power button. This worked. But now my computer has gone blank again and I resurrected it the same way again. Is there some other problem causing this? What can I do so that I don't have to do this reset procedure over and over again? Thanks for you help!!!

Sadly yes.

The dv6000 line was plagued with problems that resulted in recalls, legal actions and more.

But to answer your question, you show the new owner what to do and then you don't have to do that anymore.
